Huanglong Valley

Sichuan, China

Nestled in China's Sichuan province, Huanglong Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site affectionately known as China’s Yellowstone. Here, multicolored pools of water -- the result of mineral deposits -- dominate the landscape as snowcapped mountain peaks wrangle for attention. The true star of this magnificent landscape is “5-color Lake” whose colors range from luminescent blue to iridescent gold. With numerous caves, secluded beaches, virgin forests and pristine springs, this natural paradise is truly awe-inspiring.
